The official Heiro Day is on September 3rd or 9/3 (another reference to Hiero collective members Souls of Mischief's '93 Til Infinity), however the festival is always held on Labor Day, ensuring more fans and family are able to attend. Aside from Hieroglpyhics, no lineup has been announced yet but based on previous years it's safe to assume it won't disapoint.
The all-ages event begins September 5th, 2016 at 11am and will run through 7pm at 3rd St & Chestnut St in Oakland, CA. Features include 3 stages, street art, children's activities, food trucks, vendors and more.
